Sweet Dreams Baby Card

Hello, and good Monday to you! I’m here to share a baby card today. I’ve had this Wild Rose Studio New Baby image watercolored and tucked away and I thought it would be perfect for our Flags and/or Banners Challenge which starts today on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog. If you’d like to play along you might win a Dies R Us gift voucher to use with your next order, and all you have to do is use dies on your card or project. How easy is that? The challenge runs for two weeks. See more details here.




The dies I used are Whimsy Stamps Build a Banner and Wild Rose Studio Blossom Burst. I topped it off with a Spellbinders Ribbon Banners die and a sentiment from another baby set (love making baby cards).




The Blossom Burst was cut in white, then colored with Copic markers and the flower centers dotted with a white Viva pearl pen. Can’t forget the glitter which helps the flowers stand out from the background.




The pretty designer paper is Whimsy Stamps New Beginnings. Love that Teddy bear face peeking out from under the banner. By the way, I call this my “cheater banner”. Each of the separately cut flags is glued in place directly onto the image panel with bows glued onto the ends. Much easier than trying to hang the flags on a length of ribbon. Also, I cut two sets of flags from two different papers and inset the shapes from the alternate paper.




The Dies R Us Inspiration Blog has something different to see every day and we always link up so you’ll know just where to find it. Now, how about that Flags and/or Banners Challenge? Are you in? Have a happy day!
